    If that's an old wrought anvil (most likely) it was very common to make those in two main pieces- the top and the base. (Three pieces total when you count the hard work face plate.)

    Hazarding a guess, I'd say whoever made that (probably about a hundred years ago) got an imperfect weld between the top and bottom pieces, and eventually just use, vibration and wear cracked the weld through.

    Luckily, old wrought welds nicely with modern techniques, like MIG or stick. You can vee that thing out deeply and stick 'er back together with plain MIG wire. You don't have to weld it fully, and you o want to be sure not to overheat the body- you could draw the temper out of the top face plate.
